View Full Version : For those that are looking to develop a small pi

For those that are looking to develop a small piece of software for the tablets, perhaps one where you can click the button on the stylus (right click button) on an input box (Internet explorer address area, google search box, username password boxes, etc) and a box will appear under it where you can write what you want to input to it. Somthing similer to the onscreen keyboard where you write in what you want converted to text. Sorry I made that so complicated but I could not think of a better way to explain it. Anyways, does this exist, and if not would this be hard to code considering its basically already built in to Tablet Edition? I do not have spftware writing abilities but am thinking that if this doesn't exist to begin researching how I could do this. Is this even somthing that people would use? Just a thought.

Once you put the cursor in the text box, you can use ink in the TIP (or anywhere with the Write Anywhere feature enabled) that will be converted to text.
If you check the software library, there is a beta of an ink-based address bar for IE.

I don't know of anything exactly like you describe smoussa. Like Bishop mentioned the easiest way for input like that now is the TIP. I think your idea is a good one, as it would allow for more screen space when browsing the web (no TIP in the way).

This is very similar functionality to the new object added to the Tablet PC SDK called the PenInputPanel. It is basically a pop-up version of the TIP that can be associated with controls. Technically, you could write a program that popped up a version of this when the button on the pen was pressed (it could save the window handle of the window with focus at the time when it is envoked), and when you chose to send the text entered, it would send that text to the window that had the focus when it was invoked.
